No, Scratchies are for good boys, and If you and Orangusnake keep fighting, your gonna end up in the hospital


"Strange Bedfellows" is the 40th and final episode of the first season of Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart, and the 40th episode overall.


After an insane battle, Mao Mao and Orangusnake end up in the same hospital room. But even in full body casts, the sworn enemies continue the fight.


The episode starts with the heroes fighting the Sky Pirates until an Iguana monster appears. Badgerclops, Adorabat, Ramaraffe, Boss Hosstrich, and Ratarang call timesies upon realizing the emerging threat,

but Orangusnake and Mao Mao warn their respective teammates that there is no timesies in battling. Soon the two leaders continue to battle with each other until the iguana monster stomps on them severely.

Later, Mao Mao wakes up and he figures out that he has ended up in a hospital, while Orangusnake wakes up and rips his shirt. Dr. Cuddlestein tells them that their bones are broken. After she pulls Lucky out of Orangusnake's stomach, she warns them not to fight. However, the sworn enemies don't care about and hate her rules and continue feuding, and she bangs them with a crutch, which only fractures their already weakened

bones and skeletons. Meanwhile, Adorabat and Badgerclops walk to see Mao Mao, and come across the other Sky Pirates who are planning to visit their boss. Mao Mao and Orangusnake, who are still determined to deal with each other, try not to let know Dr. Cuddlestein about their rivalry. Later,

the hero duo and the rest of the Sky Pirates take the elevator to the next floor.

In the room, the cat and the orangutan-cobra fusion are still fighting. When the duo and the other Sky pirates got to the room, they are petrified to see Mao Mao inside Orangusnake. Badgerclops stops them and Dr. Cuddlestein slaps Orangusnake and catches Mao Mao with his robotic arm. After Dr. Cuddlestein comes back from comforting a crying Kevin who hurt his arm, she is mad and unhappy at them for breaking the rules as she storms off in a rage, though Mao Mao and Orangusnake still refuse to listen to her. Badgerclops and Adorabat are equally disappointed for Mao Mao's bad behavior in

the hospital as well, while the other Sky Pirates give Orangusnake his sword. Mao Mao's frustration incrementally grows.

Eventually, Adorabat tells Mao Mao and Orangusnake to be good boys, but they can't take this anymore and fight while rolling away, after passing by a few Sweetypies, while Dr. Cuddlestein proudly brings

a baby, mistakenly by Ratarang. While Mao Mao and Orangusnake both proceed fighting, they eventually end up in a cement hole. They both sink in the cement, and as Tanner can't breathe, both try calling Slim Pigguns but he is too distracted by his headphones. Mao Mao apologizes upon understanding that if they keep fighting more, only more pain will be inflicted on both of them. So Mao Mao breaks out of his cast while being naked and floppy, tries to push the button, and so causes the cement mixer to stop. Mao Mao later wants to go back to the hospital since he is in a lot of pain, but Badgerclops tells him he's not allowed back there, so he tapes Mao Mao and says his bones are gonna heal all wrong, ending the episode.





  • Several secondary characters are seen in the hospital recovering:
    • Ketchup was in the same room as Mao Mao and Orangusnake from a visit to the dentist.
    • Benny and Penny are sitting together, both covered in bandages bellow their necks.
    • Farmer Bun can also seen in the background with a bear trap clamped on his foot, though it is unknown if he is a patient, or currently in a waiting room.
  • In Orangusnake's radiography, a silhouette of Lucky can be seen.
    • Dr. Cuddlestien soon revealed that she had taken Lucky out of his stomach, though Orangusnake was displeased, and angrily stated that Lucky was his lunch.
      • This may be a reference to how snakes eat mice and other rodents in real life, as Lucky is a hamster.
  • This episode revealed that Ramaraffe wanted to be a baker.
  • Mao Mao was the only main character to break all of his bones.
  • This episode and "Zing Your Heart Out" are the only episodes produced in 2020 for Season 1.


  • This episode marks the second time Mao Mao is shown naked, the first time being in "Mao Mao's Nakey".

Cultural References

  • The episode's title could be a reference to "a peculiar alliance or combination when two people are sharing the same but different things at the same time", or the two eponymous films from 1965 and 2004, respectively.
  • The episode itself is similar to the Looney Tunes episode titled "Greedy for Tweety" in 1957. It was about Sylvester and Hector getting hurt after chasing Tweety on the street, and they end up in the hospital. During the course of the episode, they keep trying out creative but malicious ways to inflict more damages on each other while trying to avoid being caught by the nurse.
